A Model for a Skill-Oriented Future Studies Curriculum.
Thomas, John W.
A developmental model for a junior high school course in future studies is presented, and the relationship of the model to extant curricula, research data, and needs analyses is discussed. A design for integrating this model with a second problem-solving problem model to create a future-oriented, inventive problem-solving program is also presented. The utility of this integration for sequencing instruction and for designing realistic evaluation indices, as well as the implications of these models for designing a future studies curriculum are discussed. Two sample student questionnaires designed for use in a future studies course are included in the appendix. (Author/JG)
